Bancroft Beer  |  2.5 / 4 / 6

IPA brewed with a base of American 2-row and German Wheat, and malted oats. Hopped with heaps of Mosaic, Cashmere, and Citra. Big creamy notes of soursop, lychee, an actual lime in a coconut, and the thick Summer Bancroft breeze. Quaffable AF at 5% abv!

White Shores  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Mini IPA brewed with a base of American 2-row and German Vienna, a healthy portion of white wheat, and a lil bit of oats. Hopped with El Dorado, Citra, Amarillo, and Simcoe.

Chadwick  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

OG Philly style porter brewed with a special blend of roasty malts over layers of 2-row, Munich, Vienna, and Maris Otter. Hopped with East Kent Goldings and fermented with our  house ale strain. Rich notes of toffee, bitter sweet chocolate covered espresso beans, and that classic English Earl Grey tea finish. 6% abv

Pětite Pils   |  3 / 4.5 / 7

A riff on our standard Keller Pils. This Northern German leaning lil wünder was brewed with all German pilsner malt and generous additions of Hallertauer Mittlefrüher and Select in the kettle. Brimming with light crackery malt, classic herbal spice, and waves of green tea, tall grass, and lemon verbena under rocky clouds of foam. Fermented low and slow with everyone’s favorite lager yeast. Crisp and cleannnn. 3.8% abv

Parabolic Charge   |  3 / 4.5 / 7

New Age Pale Ale Brewed with domestic 2-row malted barley and oats. Hopped with good ol’ Amarillo, Simcoe, and Idaho 7. Pithy citrus, light dankness, with deep grassy notes that take you back to the year 2000. 4.8% abv

Vibrosa  |  4 / 6 / 8

Mixed fermentation saison brewed with French Saison yeast along with our #RusticAF mixed ferm culture and then allowed to mingle with a simple wort of 2-row and golden promise for over four months in stainless, and conditioned on a half barrel of fresh Valencia OJ and some zest. Vibrant, refreshing rays of sunshine. 6% abv 

Destroy All Lines  16oz can  |  7

Ultra crushable IPA brewed with 2-row barley and triple dry hopped with three of our favs, Mosaic, Cashmere, and Idaho 7. Bright and vibrant with tropical notes drenched in Lime Skunk, crushed cumquat, and mandarin pith. At 5% abv, this one’s perfect for the summer block party and bombing all night alike.

Pils Mercato 16 oz can  |  7

Pils Mercato was dreamt up earlier this spring with our friends over at Di Bruno Bros as an ode to the iconic Italian Market grocer that has become a cornerstone of Philadelphia’s culinary community, and their first private label beer. Crafted entirely from a base of German pilsner malt and a single special ingredient plucked right off the Di Bruno’s shelf – locally produced Viva Leaf Tea Tulsi Basil infused honey. Fermented with our favorite lager strain, and then gently dry hopped with Hallertauer Mittelfrüher and Spalt Select. The result is an eminently crushable Summer sipper with a beautiful bouquet of floral spice and subtle honey dipped bread crust.

Five  25.4oz bottle  |  20

Our annual anniversary blend. This year’s blend is comprised of Chardonnay barrel aged saison originally brewed in the waning moments of 2019, then laid to rest in oak from our friends at Maple Springs Winery in Berks Co. After two years in hibernation, we blended specific portions of each barrel and married them together along with fresh sour beer from our mixed fermentation program. The draft version is a refreshing yet complex Gueuze-like blend with lighter carbonation than its bottled counterpart and dripping with notes of nectarine and apricot, nuanced woodspice, vanilla, and a delightful cedary funk. 6.2% abv

Milanville Rouge  6oz wine glass  |  5

Our take on traditional Belgian Framboise. Brewed in August of 2019 with American 2-row barley malt and aged Old World hops. Fermented with our RAF mixed culture atop that year’s harvest of raspberries from our Milanville, PA farm. Then transferred to oak barrels from our friends at Maple Springs Wine. Aged for two years and then blended in the spring of 2021 and refermented on both the 2020 raspberry harvest (frozen) and fresh 2021 harvest. Two years and three seasons of fruit come together in a beautiful bubbly beverage with jammy notes of raspberry tart, Pinot Noir soaked oak, effervescent funk, and elegant acidity. 6.2% abv

Big Hill Standard Cider  |  5 / 7

Beautiful, straightforward cider from our friends in Central PA. 5.5%abv
